Report by Debra Young on exhibition.  There was a problem with the hanging, and 16 artists did not have their Small Treasures hung for the reception; however, this was rectified by making three rows of small paintings.  Those artists affected will be invited to lunch to make up for it.  Suzanne Young and her staff worked very hard on making this show happen. Many members had paintings displayed and Karen Wickham sold her piece.
